Check these out, too...
Hourglass hunnies have their pick of pretty much all the
fashion out there. Pencil skirts, A-lines dresses, V-necks—anything that draws
attention to your itty bitty waistline works wonders.
Avoid: Baggy dresses or tops. They just hide your enviable curves.
Hot Off the Precious Burgundy Dress, $39, lulus.com
Petite: Smaller frame
throughout top and bottom
Shorter sweeties dazzle in strapless dresses—especially
sweetheart necklines and small bodices. To boost your height, stick with a
solid color or pattern.
Avoid: Hemlines that go past the knee. Midi dresses do short girls no favors.
Glittering Emerald Dress, $26, modcloth.com
Ruler: Straight frame
with little curves
The lace insets in this dress punctuate the midsection,
creating the illusion of curves. Add more shape around your hips with a skater
or A-line silhouette.
Avoid: Blocky or billowy dresses with little shape.
Daring Textured Mesh Skater Dress, $23, forever21.com
build with broad shoulders
Yup, there are tricks to create curves for buff babes. First, ruching at the torso and bust give insta-shape. Second, the skinny belt defines your torso. Win-win.
Avoid: Skinny straps or completely strapless tops.
Lulu’s Exclusive Ruche Decision Hunter Green Dress, $48, lulus.com
Pear: Narrow bust (or
shoulders), broad hips
Opt for dresses that give definition to your bust with
skirts that skim your hips. And with a belt at the waist, this dress has all
the focus in all the right places.
Avoid: Any skirt too tight (e.g. pencil) or too voluminous. (e.g. tulle skirts).
Lace White Inset Dress, $50, delias.com
Apple: Broad bust (or
shoulders), narrow hips
Even out your frame with a floaty or full skirt. For up top,
a tank or cap-sleeve fit flatters broad shoulders.
Avoid: Strapless or flashy bodices. Your goal is to draw attention away from your top and to your hips.
Power Sweet, $28, yesstyle.com
Ahh, A-line skirts: the magical silhouette. Wear a frock
that floats away from your hips while nipping at your waist.
Avoid: Uber tight or shapeless pieces.
Elegant Rhinestone Fit & Flare Dress, $38, forever21.com
